Yes, Google Maps Now Shows Your Speed; No, It Doesn’t Plan to Sell It to Insurers or the Police


Google says it has no plans to sell, or otherwise monetise users’ speeding data after quietly introducing a new speedometer feature in Google maps last month.

The feature, which uses GPS to show a user’s speed on their smartphone, caught many users unawares and drew a mixed reaction on social media.

It is currently only available on Android, with Google Maps saying in late June that it is working on an iOS version of the speedometer.
